Could someone please tell me the exact length of the motor clamp spring on a CGM when it is not compressed please. This is not a wind up
Cheers in anticipation

Do you have the spring retainers upside down?

Try to remove your ball cups first and then see the suspension arm movement. Are using o-ring inside the rear diff? Or are you using the correct universal bones (ZS-010RTB Rear Low Friction Aluminum Dogbone Blue 1pc/pack)

I see you're from Norcal, if you still can't figure it out then bring your car to Speedworld Raceway this weekend have pops (russ siemantel), John Scott, or Noah Ramos look at it for you. They're all Yokomo sponsored drivers and should be attending the Speedworld Cup this weekend.

Also what is the droop your running, may be you are at ride height using the droop screws?

if you put spacers under the suspension mounts you are moving the arms closer to the shock tower and this will raise ride height.

That should make the chassis plate lower in compairson to the arms. If I'm correct, that would me lower ride height.
